with the syrian opposition on the challenges ahead once the assad regime falls. steve, to you first. what do you understand the situation on the ground to be right now in syria? >> we have seen in the past month a significant shift in the momentum of events on the ground. we have seen the opposition increase the effectiveness of its tactics. it has acquired weapons that have permitted it to challenge the regime much more effectively across a broad range of fronts ranging from the south of syria to damascus to the north, and we're seeing this reflected in the regime's response to the opposition including some of the activities surrounding movement of chemical weapons. we don't know exactly what's at stake but part of the speculation is that they're putting themselves into a position in which they could create a defensive zone if it turns out to they're unable to defend damascus in the long run. >> woodruff: what is known about the evidence that this is a serious threat that they may turn to chemical weapons? >> the intentions of the regime are uncertain. i don't think anybody knows what bashar al
. >> tom: steve, which brand benefits the most from odd pairing, discount target to the high-end luxury neiman marcus? >> i think it is sort of a complicated analysis. i think for target, it is all win. from target's perspective, sales will be quite good. you look at the average target customer -- neiman marcus brands are often inaccessible to these folks. the chance to go to target and get some of the higher-end products i think will be very attractive and draw a lot of excitement to the store, and draw a heck of a lot of traffic for them. i think also in terms of branding, target is going to make out very well here. neiman marcus, the association consumers have are up-scale, prestigious, and so forth. for target, one of their most important marketing objectives is to be perceived as a little above walmart and k-mart and so on. by target having this partnership, they can leverage the associations that neiman marcus has developed. >> tom: does neiman marcus then lose something here in this relationship? >> neiman marcus, i think their core goal is sales. they have 40 stores, and target
of the members here. >> alec's domination of arizona proved too much for state representative steve farley. >> i just want to emphasize it's fine for corporations to be involved in the process. corporations have the right to present their arguments, but they don't have the right to do it secretly. they don't have the right to lobby people and not register as lobbyists. they don't have the right to take people away on trips, convince them of it, send them back here, and then nobody has seen what's gone on and how that legislator had gotten that idea and where is it coming from. >> farley has introduced a bill to force legislators to disclose their alec ties, just as the law already requires them to do with any lobbyist. >> all i'm asking in the alec accountability act is to make sure that all of those expenses are reported as if they are lobbying expenses and all those gifts that legislators received are reported as if they're receiving the gifts from lobbyists so the public can find out and make up their own minds about who is influencing what. >> steve farley's bill has gone nowhere. alec, on t
gates, mark zuckerberg, steve jobs. they did pretty well. >> yes, well, for any of them who will cite those examples i would encourage them to watch the probability videos. >> very low probability of that happening to them. >> lebron james, too, and others. i, you know, those are good examples, and i would be happy if my children became internet billionaires. but that's not a career track that we can all depend on. what i think is exciting about the next five years, the next ten years, next 30 years, is there's going to be much more variety in how people can learn and how people can get credentials. in the last 100 years or 200 years there was only one way to do it. go to a four-year institution, t go to a community college, pay a lot of tuition, get a bachelor's of science, bachelor's of art. they could choose that path, they could choose that path and apprenticeship. could do just an apprenticeship. apprenticeship plus online learning. it will be up to them to decide what fits their needs best and prove it to the job market or prove it to a graduate school that they're ready for tha
